The drain line should be no more than 72 inches above the floor, or you will experience drain problems. The following link explains all this to you.

Have a had a whirlpool cabrio washer for almost 3 years. It started as a small leak when it was draining to huge leak now where all the water is draining out all from the right front side.


Hello, the Cabrio has the drain pump on the right rear. Pull the washer out from the wall about 2.5 feet or so. Place a towel over the top edge of the control panel and lean the washer back against the wall so it rests there. Lay on the floor and, using a flashlight or headlamp, carefully inspect the drain pump for cracks, the rubber pipes for leaks, and check to see if the motor in the middle has water trails that look like water was slung out when spinning. These models are notorious for leakage from the tub seal at the center. Water drains down into the bearings and motor. I've also seen where the body of the drain pump cracks and leaks. Also, check the metal spring clips. They are notorious for being too loose for holding the rubber elbows and pipes on the plastic nipples under the tub--I never use them to repair a washer--I ALWAYS use automobile hose clamps purchased at auto parts stores--way better and DEFINITELY more reliable. You'll need the 1.5" to 2.5" sizes.

My washing machine spins and rinses but does not fill with water and wash, what could the problem be. It is a top loader


Does it pump the water in?, I made a small mistake of just running my drain hose to the floor drain in a basement suite once. with out the hose being up above the rim of washer,the water just runs right on out. made a mount with 2 inch pvc and ran a tube to the drain and it worked then.

Whirlpool WTW5520SQ0, when draining the water is coming out at such a fast rate it's backing out of pipe and on the floor.


Hi,
For many of the new washers you need to have a 2" standpipe and trap... the older 1-1/2" standpipes and traps will not handle the higher volume of the new pumps...

Lint build-up on clothing after coming out of washing Machine


ck to be sure drain hose is not more than 6-8 inches into standpipe ..standpipe is 30-36 inches to top from floor ..drain hose does not fit too tight in standpipe any of the above conditions may cause water to siphon out during wash or rinse resulting in not enough water in tub to carry lint away during drain
